How would you describe your therapeutic approach with clients?
“I believe that my role as a therapist is to support my clients in developing the strategies they need to be successful in life. Every individual has a different definition of success, and what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. I utilize a holistic, eclectic approach based on the needs of each individual. I have training and experience in a number of different types of therapy, but my go-to strategies are rooted in Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT), Strength-Based Therapy, and the practice of Mindfulness.”
